Tereos, a French sweetness solutions supplier, has forged a strategic sourcing agreement with Firmenich for stevia extracts.
The deal enables it to globally offer customers unique and traceable stevia-based sweetening solutions.

It is part of Tereos’ broad product portfolio which includes sweetness options, bulking agents, fibres and proteins, which add up to a complete set of solutions supported by proven (re)formulation expertise.
By combining Tereos’ solutions with Firmenich’s range of stevia extracts, this agreement further accelerates Tereos innovation in sugar reduction.
Guillaume Planque, Marketing Director at Tereos, said: “This strategic sourcing agreement with Firmenich, the world’s largest privately-owned fragrance and taste company and a leading stevia supplier, opens up new perspectives around stevia and sweetening options for customers who will benefit from Tereos’ reformulation skills and Firmenich’s extensive expertise in taste and aroma.”
